Wonders of London works on a pay what you feel basis, we understand that many of you have travelled various distances to get here, some of you might be locals, some of you might be on holiday here and we know that it can be difficult to enjoy all of London’s best attractions without spending a fair penny. We want our tours to be accessible to anyone and everyone so we don’t charge a ticket price but just bear in mind that are guides are working guides so we ask that at the end of the tour just have a think about what the tour was worth to you and pay however much or small you feel.
It was wonderful tour. Vincent shown us around with lot of enthusiasm and explained everything one needs to know. I strongly recommend this as quite often one misses out knowing the stuff.
I took part in this tour today. It was very well attended but our guide, Vincent, is a big man with a voice to match so I had no trouble following his explanations. He is an entertaining guide, gave us lots of information and had a fine sense of humour. The whole walk was inside the two parks, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens so it offered plenty of fresh air, safety and a number of attractions I rarely see despite living in London for over 30 years.
My only suggestion to make the tour even better is that when we walked past the Serpentine Lido it would have been nice to have a quick toilet stop.
